HX-18

HX-18 is one of the twenty systems charted by Taisa Hanako while she commanded the YSS Elfin Princess in YE 30.

⚠ This star system is colonized by an unknown military dictatorship. It is theorized that the inhabitants are descendants of the original human colonists who also colonized Nepleslia. All inhabitants wear masks to filter out the Carbon Dioxide from the air. Without the masks, their atmosphere would at be fatally high levels of CO².

⚠ Star Army ships are ordered not to travel through this system until further notice.
